It was worth the wait! Tijuana Covers, a project by Gerardo Molina and Fritz Torres, is finally on my bookshelf what an enormous job was to plot the city’s musical history via LP, Cassettes, and CD covers of the many bands that originated in Tijuana. Tijuana Covers is primarily a photo book with a few yet very well-curated texts at the beginning chapters of the genres represented. I am honored to have written a short text for the jazz section and grateful to the authors for including a 45 rpm vinyl cover of my father’s band Los Travelers
The book was published by the cultural office of the State of Baja California and is free to the public. I believe there are no physical copies anymore, yet you can download the PDF also for free at the link below.
